the national security agency and spying on foreign allied leaders has been embarrassing for the obama administration at a time when it hardly needs more bad news. is it more than an embarrassment? should it raise alarms abroad and at home? at first glance this is a story that is less about ethics and more about power. the great power gap between the united states and other countries, even rich european ones. the most illuminating response came from the former foreign minister of france. he said in a radio interview, let's be honest. we eavesdrop, too. everyone is listening to everyone else. he went on to add, "we don't have the same means as the united states which makes us jealous." america spends tens of billions of dollars on intelligence collection. it's hard to get data to make good comparisons but it is safe to assume that washington's intelligence budget dwarfs that of other countries just as it does with defense spending. it is particularly strange that this rift should develop between the united states and its closest allies in europe. it was predictable and in fact in a sens

security agency may have over stepped the mark in the intelligence gathering. speaking at a summit on thursday john kerry said i assure you that innocent people are not being abused in the process but yes in some cases it has reached too far. we are going to try to make sure it doesn't happen in the future. he added the president is now doing a thorough review in order that nobody will have the sense of abuse. meanwhile indonesia has claims that they used spying hubs for the u.s. and the foreign minister said the country was deeply concerned over the allegation. they came from information leaked from former nsa contractor edward snowden and said the government had not broken any laws. thailand is one step closer to passing a controversial amnesty law that could allow return of the prime minister. thousands of people are protesting against the draft bill and morae rallies are planned and we have more in bankok. >> in the early morning hours of friday the thai house passed the controversial blanket amnesty bill, something the opposition party has been strongly against and protests in
of the national security agency. the problem that japan has is that it is currently illegal to spy or use crop on internet traffic. it is simply against their constitution. i am pretty sure the japanese government would like to cooperate more closely with the united states on these sorts of things as they have their own problems with china, but at the moment it is legally impossible. >> that is the view in tokyo, what about the allegations in spain, 60 million calls monitored in one month alone. tom, what is the root of the source of these claims? >> the information came out from the journalist glenn greenwald, responsible for linking the story about edward snowden, information that was published in him window this morning -- in undo" newspaper this morning. interesting that the monitoring activity according to these peaked on the 11th of december and that there was a lull in the activity around christmas. coming on the day that the spanish and u.s. ambassador was summoned by the french government. he met this morning with a minister in the foreign ministry and the spanish capital. no reaction
that the national security agency is opening the laws and regulations that we put on them. we probably need to be able to have more transparency about what the foreign surveillance court is up to so that we can lay to rest the accusation that they are just a rubber stamp or that they don't actively double check what the national security agency is up to. so we have a communications challenge that we have got to get out there. that is not to say there is not substance. it is going to be debated. reasonable people can come down on either side of the debate, but that is what is going to be going on in congress this fall is trying to reconcile all of these competing interests. host: michael from las vegas, independent line, hi. caller: as i was telling the person who took my call, i ran who a chap in las vegas gave me suspicion that he might be a terrorist. i tried to call home and security, and it was impossible to get through. nobody answered the phone. i try to get a letter to them, i cannot get any communication. now, what does one do in a case like that? i had a very serious reason why thi
, the problem is we're not getting the full story out of the national security agency. if they had been simply running through spanish calls looking for particular terrorists over the course of a month, 60 million called is no big deal. it's almost acceptable. i think the shock for most people is that the united states allowed this to be leaked out in documented. that's what the french and germans and spanish are reacting to. now as for listening, to heads of state, that's something else. and frankly it would be highly unusual for the national security agency to monitor the chancellor of germany's phone and not tell the president early on. that would be completely opposite standard operating procedure. >> and that's what the "the wall street journal" is saying this morning citing several sources that the president wasn't notified of this. you have called this the worst damage to u.s. intelligence in 30 or 40 years. with a it worth it? >> absolutely not. look, the national security agency, i depended upon it for my entire career. it's got brilliant information when it comes to counterterrorism.
security agency is conducting surveillance, on american citizens within the united states. specifically under the u.s. patriot act which was passed after 9/11, and the national intelligence directors, clapper, james clapper and alexander will be trying to describe to what degrees they have complied with the law. they insist and they just recently actually overnight released several declassified documents trying to show that they have been complied with the directives of the secret u.s. foreign surveillance intelligence court. and that in one instance, several instances where they did exceed the boundaries allowed by that court, that they pulled back, and subsequently, the court approved their methods. so again, this is -- this won't necessarily deal with the extent with which american intelligence agencies are actually spying on foreign leaders. >> okay, tom ackerman, thank you very much, indeed. >> was it a simple car crash or a point to drive home a point by choinchinese ethnic minority? in china am teenen men square. reporting from hong kong. >> around the square normally subjected t

spokesperson, says, general alexander, head of the national security agency did not discuss with president obama in 2010 an alleged foreign intelligence operation involving chancellor merkel, nor has he ever discussed alleged operations chancellor merkel. the president reportedly apologized to merkel who grew up in east germany under the eyes and ears of the sassi. he said he would have stopped the bugging if he had known about it. lawmakers say new leaks from edward snowden about the u.s. intercepting phone calls from other officials are really hurting relations. >> i think the revelations from snowden and the secrets that have been revealed are doing significant damage to our bilateral relationships with germany, with mexico, with the other countries where the suggestion is that we have listened in. so i think we have repair work to do. bill: brazil's president canceled a state visit over nsa leaks that indicated her phone calls had been listened to. bill? bill: what is the white house going to respond to or how will it respond now to these leaks, wendell? >> reporter: as they dribble ou
alleged national security agency eavesdropping. a spanish newspaper has published a document that shows the n.s.a. tapped into more than 60 million phone calls in spain in a month a week after similar reports of united states spying in france and germany. officials say the white house is reviewing the way america gathers intelligence to account for the security concerns. the white house cut off monitoring programs after learning of them including the one tracking german chancellor merkel. >> homeless advocates will stage a sleep in, in the mission district protesting the proposal to close the city parks at night. currently, san francisco's $220 parks are open all night but he is pushing a measure 20 close the parks between midnight and 5:00, the only way to prevent an estimated $1 million a year loss from vandalism and illegal dumping. opponents say it will criminalize homelessness. >> it has been breezy. with have this each fall. right when the leaves are peaking. there could be newspapers or trash blowing around in your log, that is the kind of night it was. still tracking the isolate
admitted for the first time that the national security agency may have overstepped the mark in its intelligence gathering. speaking at an international summit on thursday john kerry said i assure you innocent people are not being abused in this process but, yes, in some cases it has reached too far. we are going to try to make sure it doesn't happen in the future. and he added and the president is now doing a thorough review in order that nobody will have the sense of abuse. meanwhile indonesia has claims the embassys were used as spying hubs for the u.s., indonesia foreign minister and said the country is deeply concerned by the allegation. information was leaked by former nsa contractor edward snowden and the prime minister said the government has not broken any laws. a worker strike in the indoe knee is a region is in the second day and demanding more pay and better conditions and unions say two million people took part on the strikes on thursday but police say the figures are much lower. thailand now where a controversial bill granting amnesty to politicians for crimes they com
of state has publicly admitted the national security agency may have overstepped the mark. >> in some cases i acknowledge to you, as does the president some of these actions have reached too far, and we're going to make sure that that is not going to happen in the future. >> simon we heard a very contrite john kerry, but are these just words or will they be followed up by action? >> well, it's not clear, because although it was very interesting in dimension and john kerry becomes the most senior administration official to admit that perhaps they went too far, and the surveillance was perhaps inappropriate. i don't think it went as far to a lay out any kind of apology. as we heard the majority of this answer was this intervention that he gave, in a sense was a justification for this huge surveillance program, although he took issue with some of the reports in the press, for example reports that 70 million people were being listened to. no, he said that was complete exaggeration. but in the post 9/11 world, governments and other governments other than the united states, simply had to do this
to tell me the national security agency had the power to spy on whomever they pleased and may have taken advantage of that power? >> you can bet nsa surveillance will be a topic of conversation when they meet with secretary of state john kerry in the oval office. a delegation of european participate parliament officials met with mike rogers to discuss reports that the u.s. is collecting data from their citizens and spied on world leaders from 35 different countries, including the personal cell phone the german angela merkel for more than a decade. the nsa went on record to say that the president did not know about it. it makes me feel worse actually. the president has been forced to apologize not only to merkel but france's president and brazil's president. the eu is threatening to cancel pending trade talks. thanks, edward snowden, we appreciate it. let's spin. there's a lot of directions to go. one of the dynamic that's really interesting, to consider president obama's position here, i think we've all been trying to figure out where exactly he stands. he's been hawkish in some ways and
that the national security agency tapped the phones or intercepted messages from the leaders of 35 countries. that includes a lot of the u.s. allies. >> a lot of people are offended. brazil and mexico lodging complaints about the u.s., spying on them. in europe, friends including germany, france and spain, they're furious. a spanish newspaper reporting today that the nsa scanned 60 million phone calls in spain. get this, in a period of one month, be december last year to january. >> we've got correspondents around the world covering the blowback that is facing the united states. first up, want to check in reaction from spain where as we said, the claim 60 million intercepts. al goodman is joining us from madrid. >> reporter: suzanne, there is the spanish government summoned the u.s. ambassador to madrid to give an explanation. that happened earlier. afterwards, the spanish foreign ministry issued a statement warning washington there has to be a balance between security and the right of the citizens to have privacy. so there is in their communications so there is a warning shot across the bow
.s. ambassador i had intimate knowledge of some of the things that the national security agency was doing, so let's at least understand several things. the nsa will vacuum up anything and everything they can get their hands on because no one, no one other than the president and his top national security adviser, can tell them not to do something, so that's point one. point two, the damage that has been done to american economic interests as a result of this revelation is as important as the foreign policy consequences, because what european company will want to use american networking capacity and other types of computer technologies as a result of this. finally, one other thing. i'm really embarrassed for this white house. i feel awfully sorry for the president because this is basically going to undermine the -- our transatlantic alliance for many years to come, just at a time when we're negotiating an iran agreement. where our european allies are so important to us. >> meanwhile there are some republican leaders coming out, republican congressman peter king defending the u.s. spying on world le
allegations of national security agency has been spying on them. early early i spoke with the former u.s. ambassador to nato about whether the reaction is for their people or if it is personal. >> i don't think we should discount the personal feeling of violation that someone like chancellor merkel has. when she realizes it's her very own cell phone that she has in her hand that's being listened to. i can see that there is a personnelment to this and a genuine reaction, but from the establishments in european governments a lot of this is for public con zukauskus. the publics are upset so the government needs to show that they are upset. and it's also convenient for the government to his deflect everything towards blaming the united states rather than having anyone scrutinize what they do. >> let's zero in on chancellor merkel an al annal an ali. how much is going to need to be done for her to be satisfied? what has to happen? what left of the transparency -- does she want to know what do you have? toll at that time? >> i wouldn't say that each and every communication is asking for too
more disclosures linked to the national security agency. newshour correspondent kwame holman begins our coverage. >> in madrid the u.s. ambassador to spain james crossoes ignored shouted questions about how his meeting at the foreign ministry went. he had been summoned after the newspaper el mundo reported the nsa tracked more than 60 million phone calls in spain just from december 2012 to january 2013. meanwhile in washington members of the european parliament met with the house intelligence committee on u.s. surveillance. >> it's just about trust. for the european union to restore this trust to make sense of why the nsa surveillance was necessary, why it's so disproportionate. >> there have already been revelations that the nsa collected the phone call gait of french and german citizens and of ger pan chancellor angela merkel. over the weekend the german newspaper said merkel's phone was monitored as early as 2002. and another german paper said president obama was briefed about the effort in 2010, much earlier than previously reported. the nsa denied mr. obama was briefed that far bac
following a bashlash over reports the national security agency has tracked phone calls of dozens of world leaders. >> we recognize there need to be additional constraints how we gather and use intelligence. and it's in the context of this dynamic technology environment that the president has directed us to review our surveillance capabilities. >> one report from a german tabloid indicated that president obama knew that the nsa was tapping the phone of the german chance explore he allowed it to continue, again, german tabloid, a spokeswoman for the agency says that is simply not true. and "the wall street journal" reports the nsa stop monitoring chancellor merkel and other leaders after a white house review uncovered the operations. "the wall street journal" again. meanwhile, a state department spokeswoman says our ambassador to spain met with officials there to discuss reports that the nsa tracked more than 60 million phone calls in that country in one month. dana perino was the press secretary under george w. bush, the 43rd, president bush, 43, and this was happening under bush 43rd. >>
around the world will be making their own decisions. the director of the national security agency has been before a congressional committee this week taking direct questions about how his department collects intelligence. >> journalists who published snowden's leaked documents told cnn he does not believe general keith alexander when he insists the nsa is following rules. >> he's being very specific and talking particularly about the reports of earlier this week, tens of millions of phone calls in france and spain, and he said it's completely false. what is your reaction to that? >> notice what he did not off, any evidence for the truth of what he's saying this is, remember, an agency that is extremely beleaguered in the middle of an intense scandal, both at home and abroad. it is an agency whose top officials have a record of lying to the congress and to the american people through the media, including general alexander. and these claims, which i was astonished to watch journalists yesterday go on television and treat as though they were the gospel are accusations made without eviden
